A fabulous start to another year of creative weaving for y'all. This year is a major gift to those stepping out into block weaving. And we'll throw into the mix the plea to hang on to your old weaving books no mater how musty or how icky the yarns and colors. Thanks to all who made this year's samples possible. Keep weaving. Keep safe. Keep Happy - Mary Underwood

Ann Arbor Fiberarts Guild
Halvdrall, Poor Man’s Damask, or Demi-Damask samples were woven by the guild’s study group, Warped Weavers, Susan Baier, Laurel Barnes, Cindy Harris, Jean Hosford, Susan McDowell, Tammy Renner, Amy Stevenson, Betsy Szymanski, and Mary Underwood. Weaving ‘square’ was the biggest issue in choosing an easy way to explore block weaves.
Yarnwinders Fiber Guild of Marquette
Guild member Naomi Fletcher created a name draft for “Yarnwinders” in overshot. Blue and white were chosen to represent the colors of the Scandinavian heritage of the Upper Peninsula region. Sue Bell, Eve Lindsey, Melinda Stamp and Celeste Geschwindt wove the fabric; Pat Curtis and Patty Beyer completed the sample processing.
